Measuring woody encroachment along a forest-savanna boundary in Central Africa

Mitchard, Edward T.A; Saatchi, Sassan S; Gerard, F F; Lewis , S. L.; Meir, Patrick

Description

Changes in net area of tropical forest are the sum of several processes: deforestation, regeneration of previously deforested areas, and the changing spatial location of the forest-savanna boundary. The authors conducted a long-term (1986-2006) quantification of vegetation change in a 5400 km 2.
